      Could the new Intel Iris Gallium3D driver come to Gen7 graphics?

        This driver was in development for a few years, many times it was stated that it is only coming to GEN8+, even once Intel engineer answered that in the comment section.

          It's great to see the OpenGL spec for Mesa consistently shrink. Since getting 4.6 support was no minor task, that should free up a lot of developer resources for other things.

          I really look forward to the day when Mesa's compliance is fully caught-up, because at that point it is full speed ahead trying to improve performance and add features that we often miss out on.

            According to mesamatrix.net, Mesa is fully compliant on all versions of OpenGL notably for both Intel and RadeonSI so optimization could be the focus. The Vulkan compliance are covered on Linux distribution aside other operating systems Android an Windows.

            Mesa 20.0.0 will be very exciting for amdgpu graphic cards an APU users with a noticeable difference in term of performance.

              It is fully complaint on all versions, but there are still a few more extensions left. When it came to Mesa's overall compliance, I was sort-of hinting at complete Vulkan support too.

                Having a Haswell system with Gen7.5 I had hoped for it too - but after Intel screwed performance totally and even iGPU mitigations resulting in graphics errors I am glad that right from the start they clearly said Broadwell would be the latest to get that support.
                They should concentrate on hardware first and currently there is no reasonable Intel desktop CPU with iGPU available - just 4k max like Haswell or as 10 nm in ultra low voltage to be of no use (Icelake being 8k capable and not even useful for age old FullHD 1080p - laughable).
                Intel deserves good notes for their open source drivers - but what they did with old hardware is not better than what Nvidia was always doing.
                I don't think I will buy any product from one of those till they fixed their totally broken workflow (Nvidia concerning their hate and stupid misbehavior against open source; Intel for misusing trust of customers concerning an absolute lack of security and using OoO to the max and still not stopping things like HyperThreading etc. - a totally new chip design is necessary to end the cadence of nearly monthly news about new vulnerabilities which are all coming from the same root).
                And now even providing FW for light ME is good movement - but it would be necessary to open what is lurking inside ME/CSME - having used an unpatched Minix trash system with more rights than the Linux kernel without getting notice (it was Google) is IMHO as former IT specialist just betrayal of customers.
                For both companies it is all about rebuilding trust.
                We will see - but the current Sandy Bridge to Comet Lake is just trash design (they don't even state to have fixed Spectre & Meltdown & friends ... as they did with Icelake {which was not that true if the news had been correct} - no need for new driver support there ... that's really sad - as FW upgrades and mitigations just wrecking those systems.
